one of my favorites. What a blast we had on the Rocky Mountain tour. This was my fav of the bunch.

Tonight is the 32nd anniversary of my first show...never hesitated or ever looked back, in with both feet. Deadhead from the word drop. Three weeks after John Lennon's murder, the first song says it all. One door closes as another swings wide open. The show was beautiful, my favorite version of Brokedown Palace.

I loved camping out at the Oakland Aud. Watching hippies get ripped-off by the three card monte sharks...hallucinogens and hand eye tricks are not a good combination. The crazy buses were a fun distraction. Not much sleep to be had. Serious urban setting. One long party...
